Does your dog have a mellow temperament and love to be petted by new people? Are you interested in working with your dog to give back to your community and bring comfort and relief to children, seniors, the sick, the injured, and the grieving? Our Therapy Dog class will prepare you for pet therapy work by covering important information on the certification process, rules and how to conduct yourself in therapy situations, and how to begin therapy work once you’re ready. We work on strengthening necessary obedience skills and proper socialization, roleplay common therapy situations, and take field trips so that you can observe, firsthand, the different types of pet therapy environments and decide which one would be best for you and your dog. Our therapy dog students go on to certify through Pet Partners, Therapy Dogs International, Alliance of Therapy Dogs, or Love on a Leash and are now regularly volunteering in hospice care, hospital programs, schools, libraries, assisted and senior care facilities, and more.
